Rescue Those Who Are Being Taken Away to Death

"Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, 'Behold, we did not know this', does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it, and will he not requite man according to his work?" (Proverbs 24:11-12)

Today is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. What have you ever done to end legalized abortion in the U. S.? Anything?

Or do you just turn your head away from it, avert your eyes from it, and close your minds to what's really going on?

Life is precious, especially the lives of the most vulnerable people in our midst: the unborn children. Do you realize that God holds us accountable for what goes on in our society? That if we do nothing to stop the evil of abortion on demand in our society we will be judged as evil doers, as though we ourselves had committed the evil act?

Christians often think that sinful actions are always just that: actions. But inaction, especially when people are being slaughtered, is a sinful act too. Doing nothing to end abortion, acting as if there's nothing we can do about it, and deluding ourselves into ignoring it are sins of the worst kind.

Do you realize that people are being slaughtered? 4,000 people a day? Does it bother you? Do you even care? Are you now or have you ever done anything to end legalized abortion on demand in the U. S.? I strongly suggest that you do, because God judges both for our actions and our inactions. Do you act as though you don't know that babies are being slaughtered? Do you act as though you do know? Know this: we will be judged according to our actions, whether good, bad, or, as in this case, indifferent.
